Bingo. For as long as I can remember, most malls would have halls where people would convene to play this game. There would be an announcer calling out letters and numbers. An excited crowd would be holding on to their cards, hoping for a Bingo. Then, the pandemic happened. Bingo evolved. Now everyone can play online, in real time, via BingoPlus. But there’s more to it than simply playing the game. BingoPlus has been giving back to society via the BingoPlus Foundation and its many corporate citizenship initiatives.
Being an active supporter of charitable projects, the BingoPlus Foundation is set to provide college scholarships to ten (10) outstanding students in the country. The BingoPlus Foundation has partnered with one of the most innovative and sought-after technology, design, and business schools in the Philippines — iACADEMY — for the FutureSmart Scholarship Program.
